New music often has a precursor to it all. Stories of songs past link together with new tales that work together. For The Mountain Goats that’s what’s going on. With a new album coming Jenny From Thebes in October 27, the band has offered up a new song that sings to past releases. Stream “Fresh Tattoo” below and get all of the details.
The song has a finality to it that sings out to you. The vocals bounce in and take over while exercising their height. The drums roll in and the song feels full circle. Backing vocals add to the words that roll forward. The underpinned notes take your ears on a new journey. There’s a lot happening here but still sectioned off as its own sound.
The song can be heard above or wherever you stream music. Jenny From Thebes is available for preorder from Merge Records before it drops on October 27. The Mountain Goats are on tour starting October 02 at Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA until December 15 at Bier Hall at Intuition Ale Works in Jacksonville, FL. Their dates can be found here.
